Contents of this page
- Artemis - tripod
Obv. Head of Artemis to right. Monogram behind neck. Rev. Tripod within laurel wreath. AΠOΛΛΩ/NIATAN (APOLLO/NIATAN). BMC 47.
The Apollo/obelisk and the Apollo/lyre types occur in the Dimalla hoard (see Further reading)in two different modules; this testifies that these were produced also during the Apollo denar series, then minted in the Roman imperial standard.
- Zeus/tripod. Obv. Head of Zeus to r. Rev. Tripod lebes between name in two parts, ΔΥΡ below . This is the most frequent Dyrrhachian bronze type; probably contemporary with the cow/calf drachms. Almost all known varieties were found in a temple urn, see the Elbasan hoard in Further reading.
- Herakles/bow, club, and quiver
- Nike/palm and bunch of grapes
